Ashland, May 31.—(Special.)—One of the most successful years in the history of Ashland college has just closed. The Rev. Frank Marston of Goodwater preach ed the commencement sermon on Sunday. He preached at the Methodist church in, the evening and all who heard him agree that both of his sermons were among the best they have ever heard. ! The annual adc^rss was delivered by the Rev. L. C. Branscomb of Talladega. Many noted speakers have stood upon%the same floor in rhe past but never before has suoh an eloquent and forceful speech been made here, and many say they never heard it equalled anywhere. All the ex ercises were good and large crowds at tended. C. F. Strickland was re-elected presi dent and will be at the head of the school for another year. In The Age-Herald of May 30 your Mont gomery correspondent made some In correct statements with reference to the court house fight In Clay. lie states work has already been inaugurated on a new temple at Ashland, but stopped while there is uncertainty as to where the decision will finally lie, Linville mak ing a big fight for It. Llneville contends that it has a petition of more than half the voters as authority for the governor to appoint commisisoners to hold an election to decide the location. The work on the new' house has moved along as rapidly as the hands could do the work and accumulate material. While .this is being written fifteen hands are at work on the foundation and others are placing the material on the ground. If your correspondent w-ill call at tiie governor’s office and see the petition mentioned he W’ill find 1016 names on it, while there are a few more than 3500 reg istered voters In the county. Some of these have failed to qualify by not pay ing their poll tax. hut wrhen these are de ducted the petition does not contain any thing like half of the qualified voters. Ashland has a petition with over 1900 voters asking the governor not to call an election and to let the court house remain whore it is. The same correspondent states: “At least one personal difficulty in which eyes have been blacked and face! bruised.” as a result of this fight. If this Is true it has not reached the people of Clay. There was one face considerably bruised In Talladega, on last Sunday when Senator W. S. Smith of Llneville was taken to account by a young Talladeglam for some remark Smith had made about the fam ily of the young man. The conservative people of Clay do not expect any fight-' over the moving of the court house and the work is moving on according to con tract and In justice to Ashland and i large majority of voters of Clay county, this correction Is asked. ESTEEM SHOWN LODGE BY COMPANY EMPLOYES Handsome Gifts Are Presented to Re tiring President of the Central Iron and Coal Co. Tuscaloosa, May 31.—(Special,)—Joseph 'Lodge, the retiring president of the Con st rnl Iron and Coal company, located at Holt, has been presented with a magnifi cent chest of silver, a handsome cut glass punch bowl and a solid gold watch. All these gifts were presented to President Lodge Wednesday at Holt. He was called ftVm his office to a spot pear the works, where a large body of employes had gath ered from Kcllerman, Giles, Vance and Holt. The chest, which consisted of 122 pieces, also the punch bowl, were present ed to Mr. Lodge by Henry A. Jones of this city on behalf of the employes as a token of esteem and love. Mr. Lodge re sponded ill a most gracious manner, and before his speech was ended there wore few dry eyes to be seen. He thanked every man individually and shook hands with them. On the same evening at the home of Mr. Lodge here a handsome solid gold watch and chain was presented him as a token of love from the citizens of this city. The mayor made the presentation speech In a few well chosen words, to which Mr. Lodge responded. The coming of Mr. Lodge and the Central Iron and Coal company to Tuscaloosa, some five years ago has meant more to this city, perhaps, than any other one enterprise and his departure Is much regretted. He will remain :i stockholder in the com pany. but will move in a few' days to Tennessee. u Society rarely enjoys as delightful a re ception as was given at the home of Mrs. E. N. C. Snow last evening in honor of Mrs. James A. VanHoose and Mrs. Nan nie S. Mc-Lester of Birmingham. The handsome colonial home was a picture decorated as it was with beautiful gems of the garden. Those in the receiving line were as follows: Mrs. Ella Leland, Mrs. John R. Kennedy, Mrs. G. AY. Van I loose, Mrs. James Spence, Mrs. AA\ A. Leland, Miss Florence Kipp. Miss Louise Strud W'lck, Mrs. J. J. Mayfield. .Alls/ Helen Van Hoose, Miss Dora Van Hooso, Miss F usie Mc-Lester. Miss Ruth McLestcr. Miss Bessie Strudwiek. Miss Ethel Ken nedy. Miss Jennie Bridges, Mrs. Glenn Foster and Air. Henry A. Jones. The many friends of Superintendent F. W. Monnlsh, superintendent of the Tus caloosa Belt railway, will be pleased to learn that he Is doing as well as could be expected. The many gashes received, which were caused by being tlirowm from his buggy against a tree, are healing, and 'he will probably be in a condition to re sume his duties in the near future. Mrs. Ellen P. Bryce entertained delight fully yesterday In honor of Miss Carrie Knox and Miss Margaret Reynolds of An niston.
